ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Felting for fun!
A simple art skill, with endless possibilities to explore, learn how to create everything from flat pieces of abstract art, to more complex, 3-dimensional pieces and beyond. Participants will each take home their own felting needle and other materials to continue using their newfound art skills at home!
ABOUT THE FACILITATOR: SARAH BENNETT
Sarah Bennett has been needle felting for over a decade and continues to learn new techniques. She specializes in abstract pieces, with a focus on two-dimensional creations. A three-dimensional creature appears every once in a while too. Needle felting is easy to learn but requires a lifetime to master. Sarah hosts a hands-on workshop where all participants go home with their own creation and the tools required to continue needle felting at home.
